My friends in the shopping center where I have my business we often lunch pool it to Pipo's GREAT pork and rice. Love it I always am able to get 2 or 3 meals out of 1 of their portions. GREAT!

The pork dinner is absolutely the best. The meat is tender, flavorful and the portion is very generous. The side of green beans is far from plain. The service is friendly, helpful and timely. I just wish they had the mashed potatoes on the weekend.

Last year we found this no frills Cuban food place. Both the pork and the ground beef meats are very good. Yellow or white rice and green beans or plantains make a great sides. Very generous portions.

If you are looking for a quick cuban bite, then this would be a good option. If you are looking for something authentic, however, keep walking past and go to Bodega a little further down Central Ave

Excellent Caribbean cuisine served very casually. Also available for catering and would recommend them for casual backyard parties that you don't feel like supplying food for.

met a friend for a coffee date, I ordered Cuban coffee for $2.95 for a small. was disappointed because the coffee was cold and I felt that it was over priced for the size of coffee cup.

The atmosphere was okay considering a big WAWA gas station next door and a very busy road very close to the front door.

Only open for breakfast and lunch hours so go early. We saw this place the evening before out taking a stroll with our pups and they were already closed for the day. My Hubby loves me so much he remembered and took us back there...More
